's being removed from office, as a single side note. i mean, bill clinton went through -- he was keel hauled. >> yeah, yeah. >> this guy get a single side note. >> just a pesky asterisk. but, you know, politicians and presidents for years in washington have been using david petraeus as cover. if you can get underneath -- >> republicans said that name over and over. >> wrap yourself in the petraeus flag and you got immunity from almost anything. >> what is president obama worried about petraeus? >> i think it's -- i think he's being gracious now. i think maybe buyer's remorse, some people once you get into the details of this whacky situation, they're thinking maybe he should have stuck with him, maybe everything moved too fast, maybe he's -- he did what he did but maybe he's the victim -- >> before you jump to that, and i am -- the older i get the more leaning i get towards these -- >> meaning -- >> if it got out he had this affair with the reporter and also got out that the president knowing about it had kept him in office, what would that have been like? >> that would have been bad.
we can afford the story. then, i thought some of you ought to tell that to bill clinton. right sne had access to top secrets and fooling around with someone who wasn'tn't his wife. is f.there is good news, is that now that sex is involved may be the so called main stream media will show interest in benghazi. >> so you believe that the media has covered this fairly so far? what? these days ago? it's been all over the place. >> you can't ignore it. it's a story. and i'm not concerned and not interested in it. except as, if it pertains to policy such as benghazi. i'm thinking as i say, now that petraeus is... >> your theory is that we live in the united states of entertainment now, they have to cover. out of here! >> pretty much. and let's take a look at it this way from a political point of view. we keep hearing america is the center of the country. so i'm not sure it's center of right country. one. two, we keep hearing republicans have a problem with black soldiers and latinos and women, and young people. but far and way their biggest problem, biggest problem with republicans is wit
-- you won't do it again. >> tell the country that? >> tell the country. it's what bill clinton did. >> but he was impeached. >> under a little pressure. >> let's go to the latest developments in this. mrs. kelley, jill kelley, she's married, she was the one involved in being apparently -- she was scaring this other woman who was having the affair with petraeus. she complained to an fbi agent. this is where it became official. complained, jill kelley, complained to an fbi agent -- >> who was a friend of hers. >> who was being harassed. then she does this call. she called 911 one week complaining, that was jill kelley, tried to invoke diplomatic privilege to get the press off her lawn. let's listen to this. this is a little strange. >> i am an honorary consul-general, so i have inviolatability so they should not be to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well? but it's against the law to cross my property. >> this is getting more kato kaling every day. >> that phone call replaced -- >> was she writing, claiming diplomatic immunity from
secrets so we can afford the story. then, i thought some of you ought to tell that to bill clinton. right sne had access to top secrets and fooling around with someone who wasn'tn't his wife. is f.there is good news, is that now that sex is involved may be the so called main stream media will show interest in benghazi. >> so you believe that the media has covered this fairly so far? what? these days ago? it's been all over the place. >> you can't ignore it. it's a story. and i'm not concerned and not interested in it. except as, if it pertains to policy such as benghazi. i'm thinking as i say, now that petraeus is... >> your theory is that we live in the united states of entertainment now, they have to cover. >> what about peters at the top of the program? being outrage bid time line? saying do you know what? this is another example. after the election, and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true, i guess it does. they've managed to bury the benghazi story. i mean, the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel obligation to brin
and working hard for -- and playing by the rules as bill clinton liked to say, if you can't speak to both of those, you're not going to be able to be a winner or have a governing majority that is stable in this country. it's not possible. >> howard, the great swing voters, reagan democrats, more conservative, many catholics, but just middle of the road people, i'm not sure they're all capitalists and tie coopycoonst. they're general pie peoplely people that go to work and come off the shift. >> there's two levels. one is that not everybody cares about entrepreneurialism and the abstract theories of joseph, et cetera. and the other part of it is cultural. people want to be left alone to live their lives in relative security with values that they appreciate. and mitt romney, who thought the whole campaign was just about the unemployment rate even failed at that because he didn't connect up the entrepreneurial spirit with how it might help the lives of those work a day people. that's something ron 23458d nald reagan and jack kemp at least figured out how to sell a generation ago. >> i guess
that to bill clinton, right? because he also had aches is to top secrets and was fooling around with someone who wasn't his wife. if there is good news that comes out of this petraeus matter is that now that sex is involved. mainstream media will show a little interest in benghazi. >> so you believe that the media has covered this fairly so far, the petraeus thing? three days ago it broke? two days ago? all over the place. can't ignore it, obviously. >> no, you can't ignore it it's a story. and, you know, i'm not concerned -- i'm not interested in it except if it pertains at all to policy such as benghazi. i'm thinking, as i say, now that petraeus -- involved with sex. >> bill: your theory is we live in the united states of entertainment and now that sex has been injected they have to cover it? >> exactly. >> bill: what about peters at the top of the program being outraged by the time line saying you know what? here is another example of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't
second term victory. as did bill clinton with the republican controlled house and republican controlled senate after a more resounding second term victory then president obama. both examples, both of them, illustrate the rare opportunity that divided government presents. president obama can follow suit or he can take the extremist view that both reagan and clinton rejected by founding his nose at the other side and insisting that if republicans are not willing to do things his way he will not do anything at all. if the president is serious, he will follow the lead of president reagan and clinton. if he is really serious, he will put the campaign rhetoric aside, propose a realistic resolution that can pass a republican controlled house and a divided senate, and work to get it done. if the president acts in this spirit, i have no doubt he will have the support of his own party and a willing partner in hours. the american people will criticize of relief knowing not only that we have avoided a crisis, but that washington can feel their interests. unless we act, americans will face a combina
to today, we've seen them go from about 31% voting for bill clinton in 1992 to 73% according to the exit polls in 2012. we don't see a similar dramatic shift for latinos. >> sandra, you saw the statistics. they echo each other. the two groups seem to be, and that's why we're asking the question today. the issue of immigration as well is very similar when you have a discussion at any one of the conferences that are out there for these particular constituencies. i want to bring up some numbers for you. there's a recent survey of hispanics that found they view jobs and the economy as the most important issue at 53%. that's followed by immigration reform at 35%. also in a survey, it found that asian-americans cite the economy and jobs as top problems for them. immigration doesn't make the top four for asian-americans in this group. talk about this, if you can. how do you explain the differences in those two groups in their view on immigration? >> it's interesting. like you say, when we talk to groups themselves, immigration is top for many asian and latino families. i think when it comes to
crystal said this weekend does not hurt the economy. bill clinton did it. we had six of the best years we've had in the last 60. >> it sounds like there's a bit of a yawn, a gap, between what crystal said on sunday and what rich trunka appeared to say or wanted to say yesterday outside of the white house. is it clear to you that labor and the left and moveon are being more rigid than some of the leading conservative thinkers? >> sure. and that's up to the president to manage that. if he gets the increase in rates or something very close to what he's asking for and gets substantial elimination of corporate loopholes and some individuals like romney plan, then we've got to go back to our base and say, yes, we've got to cut entitlements too because it's got to be part of a deal that has spending cuts at a significant level above the 1 trillion we've already done and revenue. look, unless we do 4 trillion to 5 trillion, we're not doing anything in my judgment that's particularly meaningful. >> walk me through the optics of what we'll see today. grover norquist last night said he thought ceos
comprehensive tax reform. bill clinton and republican congress with welfare reform and balanced in the budget. so we look forward to making this divided government productive for the american people and the several wellness we have a lot of challenges here at the end of the year. i'll be meeting with the president and the other leadership on friday to talk about the way forward and we look forward to being a part of the solution to the significant problems. it is my pleasure now to turn to our newly elected with come as senator cornyn of texas. >> well, things, natch. it's an honor to be elected by my colleagues to serve as the whip, the assistant leader on the republican side. as a drama, fat, we have a lot of very difficult work to do, but we are committed to working with our colleagues across the aisle to solving the nation's urgent problems. we know what those are in a lame duck coming out this if this are going forward. there is no mystery about that commanders say mr. to solutions based on the president's own bipartisan fiscal commission and others that have laid out the roadmap and hav
pressed obama his response was, well, under bill clinton there was great economic prosperity. the whole answer of obama is about bill clinton and now nifty the economy was under him. i got to tell you i would have given a limb to see mitt romney turn to the president and say, mr. president, i knew bill clinton. [laughter] our ideas work, their ideas don't. the last four years our economy has grown 1.5% a year. that is less than half the historical average. for 70 years, we have averaged 3.3% growth a year. now, this president is fond of saying he inherited the worst economy in the history of the universe. [laughter] >> and everything by the way, is george w bush's fault. he doesn't have much historical memory when he makes that argument. any of all remember 1978, 1979, double-digit unemployment, 22% interest rates, gas lines, stagflation. in 1980, a very, very different president got elected. ronald reagan like barack obama inherited a struggling economy. and reagan implemented policies 180 degrees opposite those of obama. instead of jacking up taxes, he slashed taxes. instead of explod
of our collective deliberations. as bill clinton might say, it's just arithmetic. in fact, this situation of a divided government has only two possible outcomes -- action based upon good faith compromise or no action resulting from political dead lock, and in my position, the latter, is not acceptable to the people of maine and to the people of the united states. we must find a way to act, because many of the problems before us, the debt and deficit is probably the best example, have a time fuse. the longer we avoid acting, the worse they get. in this case, no decision is itself a decision, and it is almost undoubtedly the wrong decision. the challenges before us are too great and the stakes are too high to allow partisan differents to keep us from finding common ground even on the most difficult issues, and i hope that in a small way, in a small way i may be able to act as a brim between the parties, an on -- bridge between the parties, an honest broker to help nudge us toward solutions. i talked to more than a dozen senators of both parties in the past three days and have been impressed
after the president's re-election. therethere would be an opportunity. >> john: like bill clinton's second term. >> the opportunity for some compromise. the president, governor romney struck a tone of bipartisanship. but there wasn't a -- really within a week, that's gone. you had senator john mccain yesterday basically saying he has no trust in the president. no credibility of the administration's investigation. that really is a -- you know, a sign that we're back to the politics as usual of -- where politics is in washington now. every issue becomes politicized hyperpartisan. >> john: you know, zeke, i'm not a democrat. and i'm pulling my hair out over the fact that these democrats are not pushing back on the benghazi issue at all. i've never seen a terrorist attack exploited for political gain -- well, since they used 9-11 to go into iraq -- seeing how this attack that killed four americans has been exploited to try to tear down a president. to smear this president. after in 2001, we were told united we stand. g
are it is the money to bring it down to make our akon and remove for word. >> what did bill clinton say? arithmetic. i like that moment that he was pointing out what numbers added up but to the democrats were chanting arithmetic. did just cannot be sound bites. those were real bills that passed. 62/75 boats -- boats. we got it done. on some of those bills after we got it done there was pressure on the house and the group of us supportive of the debt commission report we may not agree with everything but depending on the day 40 are 55 senators meeting off and on to push them through. >> there is a devotion. paul ryan said it is not their intention to raise tax rates. didn't want to agree to the tax hikes how will you work with republicans in the house? this is not what we will negotiate? there has been some change there and speaker boehner but up the olive branch that is the debt negotiations are all about. but look at the tax-cut issue as a major part of the solution and add that into other deductions it is a chunk of change. >> with the press conference . >> guest: i missed the meeting but they passe
: just a related note. jim saying president bush read -- raise taxes and bill clinton ran on the worst economy in 50 years. guest: to the last caller, i do not mean to disappoint you. i agree with what you are saying. we do not have a position that we should lower taxes on corporations. there are some democrats saying that. it seemed crazy to me. we desperately need the revenue to kickstart our economy. when you talk about the fact that our government has been captured by lobbyists and corporate interests, when i talk about -- talk to moveon members, that is the first thing they say. banks have absolutely capture the regulatory process. oil companies have a huge amount to say about what the energy regulations are. you can go right down the list. i totally agree that we have to change how campaigns are financed in this country and the revolving door that allows people to zoom right out of government into lobbying and back and forth. that door should be slammed shut. there are things we need to do to break the ties between corporations and big business and the government that should be s
starting in 2003 when the statutory budget controls that are supported by president bush 41 and bill clinton expire. that meant the so-called payroll rules that you could not end up doing that finance it cuts, could not expand new government programs of the should pay for it. they expired. washington spun out of control. three things happen in 2003. the second round of tax cuts, we could not afford them. we invaded a sovereign nation without declaring war, without paying for it -- iraq. we expanded medicare to add prescription drugs, added $8 trillion to medicare was already underfunded about $20 trillion. irresponsible. things have frankly gotten worse since. host: mike, centerville, massachusetts. a democrat. caller: hi. i am wondering why since our healthcare system is one of the biggest drivers on our national debt what we never hear cbo numbers comparing single payer to the private situation have in place now. guest: mike, cbo is generally requested to do work. frankly, they have a huge supply and demand imbalance. they're getting a lot more requests than resources -- then they

disproved. an election that dealt often content-free, in a curious way, if you think backk to bill clinton's speech at the democratic convention, that is exactly what it was. it is hard to imagine a single speech that more effectively moved the numbers on a very difficult divide. that tends to be set almost in concrete. it is unprecedented that one speaker in 50 minutes managed to move those numbers. that was the keynote speech not only for the convention but the campaign. it was not equal again by anyone. but it did not have to be. it weaker so after the election, we are being told new conventional wisdom. that debate did not matter. the fact of the matter is, at barack obama had another debate as bad as his first debate, we might be having a very different discussion. debates, for better or worse, produced the republican nominee. we were told that money and advertising are wildly exaggerated in their impact. but it had not been for mitt romney's money and carpet bombing of fizz opponent in the primaries, he would not have been nominated by a convention that never gave him it's hearty, ,
